Q: How has the recession affected MOWAA and its programs?
A: The recession has seriously impacted MOWAA and our local meal programs, particularly as it relates to our ability to raise funds for nutrition services. Meals On Wheels programs now face the added threats of skyrocketing food and gasoline prices. When you combine the recession and rising food and transportation costs, it has a triple impact on the ability of our programs to provide and deliver meals, particularly in rural areas where staff or volunteers sometimes have to drive 40 or 50 miles to deliver a meal.
